The Prompt Payment Act requires state agencies that acquire goods and services, or conduct business through contractual agreements with non-governmental and privately-owned businesses, to pay by the "required" payment due date for delivered goods and services.
The required payment due date is established by the terms of the contract; or if a contract is not in existence, thirty calendar days after the receipt of a proper invoice, or thirty days after the receipt of goods or services, whichever is later.
The Prompt Payment Act:
- Promotes timely vendor payments;
- Improves vendor relationships;
- Promotes competition;
- Reduces the cost of goods and services provided to the Commonwealth;
- Facilitates sound cash management; and
- Increases the investment potential for the Department of the Treasury (DOT).
Additional information regarding the Prompt Payment Act may be located at Department of Accounts Forms, Instructions, and Information.
